Senior Policy Advisor - Strategy, Oxford-Cambridge Arc Unit, Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government
CAPE Policy Fellow
Owen joined the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government in September 2019 from HMRC where he worked on workforce planning and EU exit preparations.
After spending six months supporting the Department’s COVID-19 response, including heading up the Strategy and Project Management hub for the Safer Public Spaces work to support the safe reopening of high streets and green spaces, he is now a Senior Policy Advisor in the Oxford-Cambridge Arc Unit.
Owen leads on strategy and local growth in the unit, considering how to unlock the economic growth potential of the Oxford-Cambridge Arc through strategic infrastructure, housing delivery, and a long-term plan for economic growth. This includes working closely with local partners and officials across Government to take a joined-up, evidenced-based approach to unlocking the potential of the Arc.
